Academic Writing

Academic writing can seem a daunting task, especially if you are imbibing its rules for the first time, or have spent some time away from academic study. Academic writing can, certainly, feel like a world of its own. There are certain conventions, a particular vocabulary, and methods for doing this which students are simply expected to understand.

At the same time, as a postgraduate you are also expected to make your writing your own: simultaneously building upon knowledge of others, finding a gap, making a critical analysis, and asserting your own argument… it’s seems like a lot!

However, take it in smaller chunks, one step at a time…and it’s entirely achievable. Use these pages to help you do just this.

If you are in need of a refresher, a ‘beginner’s guide’ to academic writing, check out these pages.:
